a little catch up













Hi there lovelies! I can't believe it is November since I last wrote a blog post. Isn't it scary how fast time flies by! I hope you are all keeping well and have had a great start to the year.

Since my last blog post, my life has basically been work, work, work. I have hibernated through the winter months, choosing to stay snuggled by the fire, as I have seemed to catch every germ going! But doesn't it feel good to see signs of spring? Lighter nights, waking up to birds chirping, warmer weather, tulips and the beginning of new life are just some of the things I love about this time of year. I always feel spring marks the beginning of a new year more so than January 1st.

I have really missed being here but I'm hoping to gradually get back to posting on a more regular basis. My batteries needed recharging and there never seems to be enough hours in the day to do everything that needs doing. Have you any tips on how you juggle blogging with work and family? Some time management skills would be greatly appreciated!!

We have some exciting things planned for this year which I'm looking forward to sharing with you over the next few months. 'Happiness is looking forward and not back.'

Have a wonderful Easter weekend lovelies. May the Easter bunny bring you all the eggs you wish for. It's good to be back.

  5. Lovely to hear from you! I've been struggling a bit with home/blog/work balance (I started a new job in November) but I've just had my hours cut (not ideal) so after Easter I'm hoping to keep on top of things better and walk more now the weather is improving! It is lovely to see spring taking over now after what feels like a very long winter!

  8. I always struggle getting that balance right but then sometimes I think whether there is a right way of doing it anyway. Just going ahead and doing what you want always works for me, so what if one day the washing up doesn't get done, one day won't hurt :) x x x x
